give life, you know, give birth, men have the destructive energy, the destructive force and women might not be able to, you know, pull the trigger. of course, arguments about what about pms, would women be able to act rationally during that period? [laughter] would they be somewhat immobilized? how are they going to have supplies in the battle? are they going to have instead of, you know, cartridges in their belt, are they going to have tampons? [laughter] now it seems antiquated. it was the '90s which doesn't feel, i don't feel that old, but -- [laughter] these were common arguments. and sometimes what was guidance got sort of twisted into policies or practices that really sort of undermined the integration of women. for example, in the army there was guidance that, you know, for healthful purposes women should shower every 72 hours. but then i was in a number of units where somehow that was taken as policy x they said women can't be in combat because women must have showers every 72 hours.

students. when our energy and technology infrastructure is lagging and our transportation infrastructure is crumbling and when our international competitors are making greater investments in 21st century innovations than we are. mr. president, saving money by reforming how we deliver health care isn't just possible, it is happening around us. a 2008 report from the dartmouth atlas project held up some promising examples, predicting that using the mayo clinic as a benchmark, the nation could reduce health care spending by as much as 30% for acute and chronic illnesses, a benchmark based on senator hatch's home state company intermountain health care -- quote -- "predicts a reduction of more than 40%." so let's get to work together in bipartisan fashion to give american families the health care system they deserve. instead of waste and inefficiency, poor outcomes and missed opportunities, let's have a health care system that is the envy of the world, not an outlier on high cost and low results. this approach has a triple benefit. it protects seniors and families who rely on medicare and me

to prosperity to year. kutz to things like education and training, energy and national security will cost us jobs and the recovery. it's not the right thing to do for the economy or for folks who are out there still looking for work. the disagree as what we have had over the past few years, democrats and republicans have still been unable to come together and cut the deficits by more than $2.5 trillion through the mix of spending cuts and higher rates on taxes for the wealthy. a balanced approach can achieve more than $2.5 trillion in deficit reduction. that is more than halfway to words the $4 trillion in the deficit reduction that economists and the elected officials in both parties believe is required to stabilize their debt so we have made progress and i sometimes believe that we can finish the job with a balanced mix of spending cuts and more tax reform. the proposal during the fiscal cliff negotiations and discussions with the speaker and others are still very much on the table. the deal's life but forward in entitlement reform and tax reform that i've put forward are still on the tabl
